Q & A #2 - Passport, what is that?
Before you head off on your quilting adventure, make sure you print off your passport for seamless entry into the grand prize draw (another punny joke). Visit a shop and make sure to get their stamp or autograph on your passport. Forgot your passport, don’t worry! Each shop will have printed copies available. Click HERE to print your passport.
Q & A #3 - How do I enter the grand prize?
Time to get that passport filled, and your sewing room stocked! By visiting all the vendors you will earn a ballot for the grand prize - and you don’t want to miss it! Purchase not required. So fill up your coffee cup, grab a friend or two, and head off for a seam ripping good time.
Q & A #4 - What’s in the grand prize?
We can't spill the tea on everything, but I can share a few early details. Each shop has graciously donated $75 to be used at their business. Doing the math, that is a pretty great contribution to my already too big stash (wait, can quilters ever have too much - I think not). In addition, some of our wholesalers and networks have donated physical items. Think jelly rolls, charm packs, silicone mat, scissors, ribbons, wool mat, Oliso iron - just to name a few. A huge thank you to our donors - an updated list will be shared on our website and social medias as it becomes available.
Q & A #5 - What are your hours?
For the Manitoba’s Big Shop Hop, we have adjusted our hours at Aspen Grove Quilting. Limited hours are posted HERE. Can’t make it during those hours? Don’t worry. Send me a message and we can make an appointment that fits into your Shop Hop schedule.
Q & A #6 - What is this I hear about a quilt block?
You heard quilt block right, and each shop is super excited to provide their favourite traditional quilt block for you to create. Bonus, each block is a fun scrap busting pattern, so grab a background fabric at one of the shops and get ready to use those scraps.
Q & A #7 - Are there any in shop promos or specials?
Each shop is operating independently, but here at Aspen Grove Quilting we will have a fun giveaway, great sales, and a fun promo for long arm quilting for any Shop Hop guests.
